Commissioned in August of 2013 by The Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens to document their new construction in the Chinese Garden, I set about the task with nine cameras, four motion control devices, extra batteries and a boatload of effort...
At over 200,000 images, I have plenty of material to work with...yikes! This is the second in a series of four short time lapse narratives. Here's the first one: buildabetterphotograph.com/time-lapse-narratives/walkway/
The subject of this page is my most ambitious attempt to date: I took an After Effects class to learn more of what I need to learn and master. Also during this process I came to a humbling and profound understanding of editing in general and sound editing and design in particular...it was a bear to cut the movement and sound together. Next time I hope to have a budget allocation for hiring a composer.
